Flush by Carl Hiaasen
Review by Tiffany, Librarian, Sebastopol Branch
Noah's dad has a reputation of going to the extreme. When he finds that someone is doing something wrong, he takes matters into his own hands. After finding out that a local gambling boat was illegally dumping into the ocean, Noah's dad sunk the boat. And now he's in jail. As a matter of principle, he won't post bail and this has made Noah's mom unhappy. She's even threatening divorce. Noah must help prove to himself, the community and his mom that his did did the right thing.
Why I'd picked it up: I had read other titles by Hiaasen and thought his stories and writing were good, so I wanted to give this one a try.
Why I'd finished it: The story was very entertaining. I wanted Noah and his father to prevail and catch the bad guys.
I'd recommend it to: Anyone who enjoys a good book with well-developed characters, a good storyline and a little bit of mystery.
